Katie O. Peltier


Ms. Peltier has over 25 years of financial management experience in the fields of banking and management consulting.  She is an expert in accounting, cost analysis, and statistical modeling.

From 2000 to 2009, as a VP of Risk Management, she led Bank of America’s (formerly Fleet Boston Financial) efforts to develop and validate probability of default scoring models for small businesses.  In this role, she developed a scoring model and Performance Based Underwriting Platform that served to reduce Bank of America’s portfolio risk.  She also reduced BoA’s underwriting time and costs and improved small business approval rates.  Ms. Peltier was instrumental in collaborating with BoA’s business lines so that they were able to understand and incorporate her scoring models and PBU process.
